Multi-agency action kicks anti-social behaviour in Firth Park

Officers in Firth Park have been working closely with partners at Sheffield City Council over the last month to tackle concerns around a property on Nesfield Way 

It follows a high volume of reports of anti-social behaviour including noise pollution, fly-tipping and environmental concerns. 

Sgt Phil Mackey, leading the activity, said: “We were receiving a concerning number of reports about issues in this area, some of which could not be dealt with by our officers alone, it needed a multi-agency approach.

“Working alongside the council, we have served a Community Protection Notice (CPN) warning which we’re hoping will deal with certain elements of the anti-social behaviour being flagged up to us by the local community. 

“We’ve also assisted the local authority with the enforcement of tenancy conditions and environmental legislation,  which has meant a dramatic improvement to the state of the property. 

“We were concerned that the local community had seen a lack of action around behaviour that was having a detrimental effect on their lives, it is our role to intervene and use the powers we have to deal with this.

“There has now been intensive action around this property, including engagement with the tenants in order to tackle the anti-social behaviour we were seeing.”  

Councillor Paul Wood, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Community Safety at Sheffield City Council added: “ The ‘Safer Neighbourhood Services’ team, made up of both South Yorkshire Police and Sheffield City Council officers, has worked really effectively to make these significant improvements and we hope residents will be pleased with this outcome.”
